A STORY OF CHILDREN, COTTON CANDIES AND MAGICAL IMAGINATION.
Kristine Joi Gonzales
Kristine Joi Gonzales was born in a small barangay in Tanay, Rizal in 1994. Growing up in an urban place, surrounded by trees and mountains, it was not surprising that she developed a great sense of appreciation and love for the awe-inspiring yet unassuming beauty of arts and nature. As a kid, she liked to draw landscapes and make figures on the dirt. Almost always, she could be found outdoors, playing hide-and-seek, piko, and patintero with her sisters and cousins. She also liked to try to sing and dance. Although, even after years of practice, she could not find her rhythm if her life depended on it. Now at 25, Kristine is currently taking her Bachelor’s Degree in Digital Arts, major in Animation in University of Makati. Merging her interests with technology, she enjoys creating 3D images, with focus on objects and vehicles, as well as digital illustrations of human anatomy and portraits. She is also a huge anime fan, and hopes to pursue her career in 3D animation in a game company. Secondborn in four children, Kristine is an ambivert. She is not into parties and other gimiks, but she does like to spend time with her closest friends.
